Oceanside Man's Body Found on I-5: CHP

California Highway Patrol officers have identified a man whose body was struck by multiple vehicles Sunday along Interstate 5 in Mission Bay.

Shane Comet, 27, of Oceanside was pronounced dead in the southbound lanes of I-5 near the Sea World Drive exit. 

The incident was reported at 3:30 a.m. Sunday. However, CHP officers are not sure why Comet was on I-5 at the time of his death.

They're trying to determine whether Comet jumped from one freeway to the other before getting hit, or if he was walking on I-5 when he was struck.

The driver stayed at the scene and has not been charged at this time.
